Lots and lots of birds . . .

Because we are studying birds, because I happened upon Ed Emberley’s Fingerprint book on my shelf, because we have been talking about estimation in math . . .

This fun art activity happened. . . Make a picture with a whole bunch of birds (know how many there are please) and the rest of us can admire the creativity of your picture and . . . practice our estimation skills. Just how many birds are there?

Markus made a beautiful picture of some very social birds hanging out together.
